Transcription of Five Lecture Presentations given by Alfred Korzybski in Los Angeles in June 1939 for the Los Angeles Society for General Semantics. Three introductory seminar talks (attended by Robert Heinlein) and two talks on "G.S. and Psychotherapy" and "G.S. and Education". What was behind Korzybski's working formula, "I don't know; let's see!"? These never-before published transcribed notes provide an excellent feel of Korzybski's presentation style and contain priceless material for serious students of his work. Korzybski opens his first talk as follows: "What is it all about? You may have difficulty at first in understanding G.S. for 1) what I say is baby-stuff, too simple; 2) we have much knowledge that we do not apply. In G.S. we have combined the knowledge that is current and abstracted method. The elementary results? How do we get what we know? This is one of the most important questions for education." Prepared and released by the Alfred Korzybski Literary Estate.
